Beechdale Road and Wigman Road Improvements

Visualisation of new cycle infrastructure on Wigman Road

We are proposing upgraded facilities along Beechdale Road, Hollington Road and Wigman Road to create a safer environment for people walking and cycling.

The Covid-19 pandemic has seen more people becoming active. Cycling has fantastic benefits for physical and mental wellbeing, and by replacing those shorter car journeys, we can all help to reduce harmful emissions and help the city achieve its target of being carbon neutral by 2028.

Using the latest design standards, the proposals will include replacing the existing cycle lanes as well as improvements to junctions and pedestrian crossing facilities. These improvements would create better connections to the wider cycle network, and provide a safer highway for local residents, businesses and schools.

You can respond to the consultation here.

You can find out more at a drop in event at Harvey Hadden
Sports Village on Thursday 14 October between 9am-7.30pm.

The consultation for the proposals will take place between 4 – 31 October. Have your say:

Working in partnership, Nottingham City and Derby City Councils secured £161
million from the Department for Transport’s Transforming Cities Fund to invest
in local transport infrastructure that will improve sustainable transport, support
growth, and encourage more low carbon journeys.
